Abandoned Pediatric Center - Explored! January 31st & February 13th, 2010.
This place was simply incredible! So good that I had to come back for seconds two weeks later. It once was a Pediatric center that offered several different services for parents in a low-income neighborhood. It housed an optometry unit, audio/visual, physical therapy, and many other services for disabled or handicapped children.
This place was LOADED with excellent finds in nearly every room and looks almost as though the people that once worked here just disappeared one day and the buildings were left as-is. Literally!
It was a bit disturbing because parts of this building closed in the late 90's and the rest following suit in the early 2000's... but you would have thought this place operated in the early eighties!!!
Everything was so out-dated and run down. The toys, equipment, and wheelchairs were from the seventies for the most part. It just goes to show that low-income people are the lowest priority when it comes to healthcare.
This place still remains in great condition for exploring because it is in a very high secured area and its patrolled regularly. So it keeps the kids and bootleg graffiti artists out. I hope it stays that way indefinitely, because I really enjoyed taking pictures in here!
